Couldn't find sweet gale, used Montrachet wine yeast. Final recipe is a hybrid between this and Edwort's apfelwein:

6gal of 100% apple juice (Kroger)
3lb of Honey (Bulk from Listermann's)
1lb of dark brown sugar
1tbsp cinnamon (instead of 5 cinnamon sticks)
1tbsp nutmet (instead of 1tsp)
8 cloves (crushed).
Montrachet Wine Yeast

Boiled quarter gallon of water + honey + brown sugar + cloves for 30 minutes, added cinnamon and nutmet for last 10 minutes. Added entire mixture to the fermenter after cooling, topped up to 6gallon. OG was 1.065

Since people were asking about the taste, to me it tastes similar to Woodchuck's Fall Cider.

I was wondering if I could make this be bottle carbonated. I don't have a keg system and wanted to make some for a Christmas party. I was thinking of skipping the Campden tablets and the potassium sorbate. I would use the 3 cans of frozen apple juice concentrate and do a stove top pasteurization after the carbonation is complete. Do you think this will work?

That would work. It's tricky, but it's been done...

Another quick question: If I wanted to make half the batch (2-2.5 gallons) should I just cut everything in half? I ask because not all recipes are linear.

I did 2 gallons on apple juice, 1lb of brown sugar, 1lb of dextrose which got me to 1.070 OG.

For spices I did 5 cinn sticks, 1tsp of nutmeg, ginger, and 1/2tsp of cloves. I added yeast nutrient and used US-04.

Got good fermentation going so far.

I plan on using potassium sorbate then back sweeten with some fresh cider. Keg n force carbonate.

Last time I had bottle bombs because I did not stop the yeast oops lol.

Cheers everyone

Everything in half will work fine.

Thanks! I'll try exactly that and hope for the best. Gonna be bottling so no potassium sorbate for me.
